Eileen Kennedy Gallery

Eileen Kennedy  has shown in New York, Boston, Provincetown, Havana and Pinar del Rio, Cuba; her works are in private collections in Cuba, Europe and throughout the United States. 

"… her intention is to recreate the “interior” of objects and place… with subtle emotional tones and form …intellectual and instinctive, she has elevated abstract figuration to an experimental mode, mysterious and novel."
   --Martha Montesino Cantillo, Cuban art critic

"Eileen Kennedy’s paintings are worldly and sexy. She paints with her whole body and mind, which is a good thing, matching pastel with noir, and a cool critical eye. Her 'Made in Havana' Series elevates the narrative to a formal tool, invigorating our ideas about how to look at story in painting."
   --Michael Carroll, Director
     Silas-Kenyon Gallery
     Schoolhouse Center, Provincetown

Following her one-woman show in Havana in November 2002, Kennedy was the first international painter to be invited to exhibit by the prestigious Museum of Art in Pinar del Rio. Working in her studios, sometimes with fragmentary sketches made on site, Provincetown and Cuba have been her inspirations for the last several years.

Her artistic background includes studies at the Museum School in Boston and Syracuse University, a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, as well as private tutorials and classes with among others, American Impressionist Ray Nolin and figurative painter Jim Peters.

Associate Editor of artsMEDIA Boston, Kennedy  writes about art when not in her studio.
